My oldest grandson (Josh) plays Little League baseball and plays on a travel tournament team. They play some weekends, and always travel. This weekend they're playing about a 2 hr drive from home. DH and I went up there yesterday and were able to watch Josh's team play 2 games. They lost the first game, then we waited a few hours before they played again. The second one was an exciting game, and at the end (called because there was another game to be played on that field) the teams were tied 10-10. These are 13 yr olds.

Seeding and advancing in play are based not only on winning games, but also on how many runs are scored against you. Josh's team didn't win a game yesterday, but they had fewer runs scored against them than some teams did. (One team lost their first game 25 to zip).

DH and I had to return home last night because we had church responsibilities today.

Our dau left a message while we were out today, that Josh's team won 14-3 this morning. They're playing another game now, and may advance from there. Can you hear me cheering long distance? emoticon

I so much enjoy watching Josh play. He's been very focused on baseball since before he was in T-Ball, and plays rather well, being the best catcher I've seen on a kid's team.

Grandma's proud.....could you tell? emoticon

    That's wonderful. I don't have any grand kid's, yet. But, I do remember my son playing ball and it was always exciting and wonderful when his team won. Congratulations to Josh and his team.

    Sorry you had to miss the games today but know that you are there in spirit. Glad he is doing well and enjoys the game. Who knows, maybe he will make it to the big leagues some day.
